Gaviotas De Atla Group's story

This group (Seagulls of Atla) is located in a community near the municipality of Tenango del Valle, very well known for making balloons and also bread. The group is composed of 10 members, among whom Sofia is dedicated to making bread.

Sofia has been doing this since she was small, as her entire family has always done this. Her family is composed of 5 children, of whom 3 are women and 2 are men. All of them have established their own families. Sofia no longer has dependents.

Sofia sells her products in Santiago Tianquistenco. She has been a widow since 2 years ago. Her hope is that her children will teach her grandchildren how to make bread and that this activity continues from generation to generation.

In this group: Karem, Maricela, Mayra, Maria Del Socorro, Filiberta, Irene Catalina, Felicitas, Sofia, Mariana, Maribel Bertha
